About the Meal Plan

Meal Plans

Meal plans are available to all registered Eastern students. Meal plans are required in certain residence halls.
All Freshman resident hall students and residents living on the 1st and 2nd floors of Occum Hall and all residents of Niejadlik Hall are required to have the SILVER PLUS $125 Meal Plan and are automatically assigned but may upgrade to the SILVER PLUS $225 or SILVER PLUS $325 Meal Plans by completing a Dining Services Agreement below. Meal Plans are semester based and cannot be canceled once classes have begun. Any unused meals do not transfer to the following semester. Unused Dining Dollars roll from the fall semester to the spring semester but zero-out at the end of the academic year in May and are non-refundable. Students who are on voluntary meal plans must sign-up each semester if a meal plan is desired for the academic year. The Eastern EXPRE$$ CARD / Student Identification Card is required to access these meal plans.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are funds that are placed on the Eastern EXPRE$$ CARD. They are part of the meal plan and can only be used for food purchases at the following on-campus Dining Services locations:
Hurley Hall, Library Café, Student Center Food Court
Select items for purchase. Present your Eastern EXPRE$$ CARD to the cashier and the amount will be deducted from your Dining Dollars Account.
Dining Dollars are in an account separate from EXPRE$$ CASH. When making a purchase at an on-campus dining services location, the system uses Dining Dollars first before using EXPRE$$ CASH.
Dining Dollars in your account at the end of the fall semester will carry over to the spring semester. They are non-refundable and will zero out at the end of the academic year in May.
If you run out of Dining Dollars, all you need to do is purchase EXPRE$$ CASH
(Please see EXPRE$$ CARD Brochure).
Dining Dollars cannot be used at the following locations:
Card Services, Eastern Bookstore, Health Services, Student Activities, J. Eugene Smith Library,
Off-Campus Merchant Locations, Student Activities, Copiers and Printers,
